  1. Put the fish in a bowl and squeeze over the lemon juice. Set aside for 5 minutes to marinate.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large nonstick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and peppers and cook for 5 minutes, or until softened. Stir in the curry paste, then add the lime leaves and continue cooking for 2 minutes more, or until fragrant.
